Together with “Startup Bureau” and “Impact Hub Tbilisi”, EFES Georgia hosted PechaKucha Night Tbilisi event. The company presented a new entrepreneurship program as well.
The concept of the event is “Going Green”. The representatives of different companies spoke about their own experiences, how their organizations are working to make Georgia, the region and the world a better place. Each company that was presented at the event contributes to making the world greener and strives to make it better by changing people’s habits. The creative ideas and initiatives were discussed on PechaKucha Night for a bigger impact.
Sustainable development is one of the priorities for EFES Georgia. The company is currently working on several projects which aim to protect the environment and resources, as well as improve the environment for the future generation of Georgia. In accordance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, sustainable development is a priority for EFES Georgia.
The aim of EFES Georgia’s Entrepreneurship Program is to support Georgian visionaries and entrepreneurs for the sustainable development of the country. EFES Georgia is running different environmental projects, including wastewater treatment, plastic reduction, energy efficiency, etc.
“As a responsible company, EFES Georgia decided to contribute to the development of the innovative ecosystem of the country, as the industry is one of the organic parts of the innovative ecosystem. Due to the fact that this issue is fragmented in our country, the involvement of corporations in this matter is one of the prerequisites for success. Hence, we decided to start a new entrepreneurship program, which aims to collect ideas in the field of environmental protection, circular economy. The acceleration and transformation of these ideas into startups will be funded by EFES Georgia,” states Nikoloz Khundzakishvili, Corporate Affairs Director at EFES Georgia.
